JCH Mountain Farm is a small, family farm located in North Central, WV. We are about 1-1/2 hours north of Charleston, WV and 2 hours south of Pittsburgh, PA.
We got our first four Nigerian Dwarf goats in early 2008, and enjoyed them so much that we began looking for another...then a few more...then some more. We have bought breeding stock from herds in many different states and have attempted to assemble a group of animals that have the genetics behind them to produce offspring that will do well with milking, showing, and as pets. We initially chose the Nigerian Dwarf breed for our daughter to use in a 4-H project, but enjoyed them so much that we decided to 'keep 'em around for awhile'. I
All of our animals are registered with the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA). The only exception to this is our F1 mini-nubians which could be registered with a miniature goat association. When they are babies, they are bouncy, bundles of personality! As they get older, they remain easy to handle, joys to watch, and wonderful additions to any family farm.
We have blue eyes in our herd, as well as moonspotting. We also have a few polled animals. Although we do like these traits, we do NOT breed for eye color or pattern. Our goal is to breed a healthy, friendly animal, that can be added to a farm as a milker, show animal, or pet. We want to raise healthy goats that are good representations of the Nigerian Dwarf breed. The fact that we get these 'flashy' traits in some of our offspring is a 'bonus' not a priority.
